that state by about 22,000 votes. now to a story you saw first on nbc10. a gang war in atlantic county. sources believe tensions between rival drug gangs are to blame for at least three recent murders there. >> are you hit? >> no. >> okay, okay. it's okay, ma'am. all right. is there anybody else in the car with you? >> yes, my aunt and my 3-year-old son. >> that's the 911 call from an average shoot-out on the atlantic city expressway back in august. five people were shot. one killed. and several charged. sources tell nbc10 now investigators believe the shoot-out is connected to at least two other atlantic county homicides. the first happened outside hamilton mall early black friday morning, and the second wednesday night in a housing complex next to the mall. no one has been arrested in the most recent shootings. and also new tonight from delaware county, one person's recovering after being hit by a

to get unseasonably cold. and it's going to sit over our area friday, even saturday, possibly sunday, finally moving back up monday. but it is going to get much colder as we go into the end of next week. for this weekend, though, 49 for a high saturday for philadelphia. if you are in south jersey, 48 degrees. sunday, 47 for a high. if you're along the jersey shore, temperatures in the upper 40s. pennsylvania suburbs, mid- 40s on sunday going into monday. we're back around 50 degrees, but we could see some very early showers monday morning. here is the ten-day forecast. i mentioned the big cool down coming. so there you see next week. we have a couple rain chances, and then friday is the day where we start to see some big changes. so thursday, showers, 55 degrees. look at friday. that's a high temperature of 39 degrees. it's going to be blustery. so very windy and cold. the winds are going to make it feel much colder than 39 degrees. and across next weekend, it looks like our highs are going to only be topping out in the low 40s. well, the eagles will be bat
